    Long story short, I was unable to attend the final court hearing regarding parenting orders and property settlement with my ex-partner. The result being that I lost any share in our home and on top of that, I owe her an additional large sum of money plus court costs.

    The amount I owe far exceeds $50,000 and I definitely do not have the means to pay this. My only asset is my car worth $15,000 but I also have $15,000 debt.

    Does anyone know if these kinds of court-ordered costs are covered by bankruptcy?

    I feel like this could be my only option but am doubtful that it is covered.
